What's Happening Now

Counting down the hours.

The Jets will be on the clock with the 16th overall pick...unless they trade up.

And that's the buzz, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York, who says the Jets have contacted Alabama running back Trent Richardson about moving up to trade him. Although it might take a hefty price to move up and get him, it wouldn't be a completely uncharacteristic move for the Jets to make.

If the team elects to stay put, though, they've been connected several times to Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw and South Carolina linebacker Melvin Ingram. Even more buzz has them taking Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd.

They have 10 selections with which to address their biggest needs: safety, wide receiver, linebacker and offensive tackle.

So, as always, there are as many opinions as there are people to voice them. Guess we'll just have to wait until 7:00.

What follows are the Jets' draft choices and moves, and they will be updated as the draft progresses, when selections and trades are made official.
